I think out of all the Shakedowns 6/30/85 is the most epic.

There are many others out there that are great, but there's something special going on with this one.

I'm not even that big a fan of the rest of the show, but they nailed that Shakedown.

I must be missing it. What is so special about this one?

I can't stand Bobby's background vocals on it. Jerry flubs a lot of the words. I'd take the 4/26/83 Philly over it any day.

The build-up in the jam is what so special about it, Red. More often then not, the jam simply ends when Garcia had enough, here there is a climax to the jam.

This one (of quite a many actually) I'll take Jerry's lyrical flubs out of the mix for the outstanding jam.

I also think 9/18/87 gets a mention here for some titanic playing from Jerry and the rest of the band, but then it kind of unravels at the end.

Listening to 4/26/83 now...

So far I'm noting the break-neck pace, Brent's synth is all over the place, and the very shrill mix... where's Phil dammit? no bottom end.

Jerry flubs the lyrics in many a Shakedown and I believe 4/26 can be included in that list.

Starting to get better around 7 mins in though...

I'd still take 6/30 after listen to the 4/26 recommendation. All little to frantic for my tastes.
